OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of a 12 month, weight bearing, aerobic exercise program on disease activity, physical function, and bone mineral density (BMD) in women with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) taking low dose prednisone. METHODS A group of women with RA (n = 23) not receiving steroid therapy and in American College of Rheumatology functional class(More)
Functional frontal lobe deficits were examined in 38 men who committed domestic violence and 38 control participants. Dependent measures that examine frontal lobe deficits, including the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (D. A. Grant & E. A. Berg, 1948), the Stroop Color-Word Test (J. R. Stroop, 1935), and Trails B (R. M. Reitan & L. A. Davidson, 1974), were(More)
The urethral pressure profiles were recorded by microtransducers in 25 continent female subjects. From the recordings, the urethral length and the site of maximum intraurethral pressure were determined with a high degree of precision. The urethral length and the distance from the external urethral meatus to the urogenital diaphragm were also assessed on 100(More)
The long-term outcomes following primary TJA for OA are favorable. However, surgery alone fails to fully restore physical function and address longstanding impairments associated with chronic joint disease. Older adults undergoing TJA can gain similar benefits as those who are younger; however, the elderly are at increased risk for adverse events. Frailty,(More)
OBJECTIVE To synthesize professional and patient expertise with available evidence to recommend best practices for post-acute rehabilitation following primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) for osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS Two expert panels of clinicians, researchers, and patients from Canada and the US participated in a(More)
BACKGROUND There is worldwide variation in rehabilitation practices after total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and no agreement on which interventions will lead to optimal short and long term patient outcomes. As a first step in the development of clinical practice guidelines for post-acute rehabilitation after THA and TKA, we(More)
Seventeen urologically healthy women undergoing standardized radical hysterectomy with lymph node dissection for stage I carcinoma of the cervix were evaluated urodynamically before, immediately after, and 1 year after surgery, by dynamic videourethrocystography and simultaneous urethrocystometry. The surgical technique had been developed in order to(More)
BACKGROUND Of the more than 104,000 Canadians who underwent elective total joint arthroplasty (TJA) surgery in 2012-2013 for hip and knee osteoarthritis (OA), 40 and 60 %, respectively, were obese. Obesity is associated with increased risks for receiving TJA, post-operative complications and delayed functional recovery. Current guidelines for patients with(More)
